Expert Forum: The Future of Trees

Learn about the benefits of well-selected trees and the challenges to their survival in our general area. Considerations will range from California forests and civic plantings to your own back yard.  Among the phenomena under consideration are our changing climate, recurrent drought conditions, choosing the right location for maximum advantages, and coping with invasive pests and problems with aging trees. There will be time for the audience to participate with questions and a tour to sample the variety of trees, including natives, that are succeeding in the Water Conservation Garden.

Refreshments at 5pm, panel starts at 5:30pm, followed by a tree tour of The Garden.

Garden members $5, Non-members $10, Students FREE (with valid ID) .
